I think I will stop putting LJ cuts on these. Do people have an opinion on that either way?


Chickpea soup, leftover from one of the many soups that neeuqdrazil tends to make for Stitch and Bitch. As is my wont, I added cajun spice. Yummy and filling.


Album: Ego Likeness' Breedless

Genre: Darkwave all the way. "Darkwave" is more or less what you call goth music made after 1990. Heavier on synths and drum machines with less guitar than the goths who came before.

Similar Bands: Crüxshadows, The Birthday Massacre, earlier Abney Park, Autumn.

Review: It was nice to get back to my gothy roots for a bit. tickly_girl posted a video of Ego Likeness a while back after she saw them at a con, and I was intrigued enough to go find a bunch of free live tracks that the band had up. EL has great female vocals that remind me of Autumn (I have no idea how obscure Autumn are - I saw them at Hallowmas in 1999). The lyrics have nice mythic references, and just enough angst. The music demands standing on a hilltop at night during a full moon, brooding. Not that I have ever done anything like that. While not as aggessively driven as a lot of the other stuff I've picked up lately, Ego Likeness is definitely very dance-worthy. Just the thing to dust off your "unscrew the light bulb" and "lost a contact lens" moves. I defintely enjoyed this album, and fully intend to pick up more of thier stuff later.

Playlist Potential: I need some sort of goth/darkwave smart playlist. I just need to work out how to tag everything properly.

Hmm...I likes me some TBM and Ego Likeness. I will have to see if I can find anything by Autumn.

I don't see any reason why you should cut these unless there were some reason why you wanted to cut them. They're not too long, they're totally SFW, they don't even have pictures, which is something that has lost me some followers in the past. Un-cut away, I say!

On top of making awesome music, they're also rather nice people. If you get the chance to see them live, do it. I'm not sure if they tour Canada, however. I'm just hoping to get them out this way sometime soon!

I always read 'em and uncut is easier to get to so there's my opinion thataway.
